IT Fund: Isolated Together Fund

The Isolated Together Fund, is a new initiative from Christian Savings to support the church during COVID-19 Level 4. Technology is an excellent tool for staying in touch with our family, friends and church community, but not everyone has access to new technology.

After receiving nominations from a range of deserving people across the country, Christian Savings donated 20 Samsung tablets to individuals to keep them connected, along with a few more from support from generous donations.

It was a joy to be able to help people stay connected during this time from isolated church members to children and teenagers needing a device for online schooling, single parent families, university students and individuals going through cancer treatment.

Stormy, Lachie, Arya and Moni. (Lachie especially has enjoyed access to the tablet).

With three young children in our home requiring access to a device for school work it’s been an amazing life saver! A big thank you to you for your generosity. – Lynn

We are so grateful for receiving the tablet from Christian Savings. It has been really handy for the kids doing their schoolwork and for using as a reward when they have done their chores.
